Shabri is the story of how a simple woman from a Mumbai slum ends up threatening the biggest corridors of power in the matka gambling underworld of the city. It’s a story of survival, dignity, determination, and human triumph in the face of impossible odds.
Shabri works in a flour mill to support her parents and a younger brother Bandya who is struggling to find some means of livelihood. The neighborhood is teeming with young jobless desperate boys whose heroes are the local matka gambling den operators. Bandya looks up to Murad who runs a matka den.
Murad has a soft corner for both Shabri and Bandya. Murad who has himself being sucked into the black hole of survival that the neighborhood breeds, does not want Bandya to meet the same fate. He wishes him to study, get a degree and wriggle out of the cursed place. He helps Bandya with money time and again and inspires him of a world beyond.
Shabri’s life takes a turn when the dreaded Police Inspector Khare rounds off the innocent Bandya alongwith other unruly boys from the neighborhood. Bandya succumbs to police torture and the impassioned Shabri ends up violating the law.
Murad, Shabri’s only hope discovers how hopelessly incapable he is of helping her in her dire need. His desperation lands Murad in further trouble as he ends up killing his immediate boss Kisnya, the brother of the city Matka don, Rajdharbhau.
Murad with partner Vilas’s help flees the city with Shabri.
But Rajdharbhau closes in on the two.
Hounded by cops as well as the matka kingpins, the vengeful Shabri has only one mission in life now, to get even with Rajdharbhau the man who took away all that she ever had.
